I wish the fb people would design something where it would not pop out so easy. or at least put something in it so you could find it easier.

I've had my One pop out of the casing once while doing yoga. I found it immediately afterward still in my shirt (thank god for spandex). the best solution I've found is simply to clip it backwards in your bra so the display is against skin. The worst that can happen is that it slips out in your bra cup then... though the extra "cushioning" seems to prevent that from happening too!

I've already lost one that way. now I'm sooooooo conscious of it - $100 down the drain because it popped out of the rubber casing. NOT HAPPY. I would say it's the weakest feature of the One.

Are you afraid to try or are you afraid to fail?

klad I like the idea of cliping it on the inside of the pocket. the only time i have had mine pop out the clip is when i sit in on the couch too close to the arm rest.

Klad, you can clip it to a sleeve, that's what I've been doing. I was too aware of it when using the wrist band.

I keep my Ultra in its clip in my pants pocket . .. it faces in towards my body, so if it pops out it will fall into my pocket. I'm more worried about losing it at night, so I'm not tracking my sleep right now. I wish the wristband fastened more securely . . . I might try to rig something.

I've had mine fall out of the wristband pouch, and out of the clip housing. I really wish the One had a built-in leash. I might fashion something with velcro in the future.

When in doubt, take a hike.

It is a cord that has a loop on one end to hook onto the pedometer and there is a very strong clip on the other end that you attach to your clothing. I wondered how I would attach at the loop end but have the ultra and I just slip,the loop through the clip and through the actual fitbit. If you google Pedometer leash on Amazon you can view them. They were $ .42 each and I was ordering something else anyway, so I ordered 3, in case I broke one but they are pretty sturdy.

I did lose my FB One. I had it on the pocket of my jeans. I drove back to where I thought I lost it and it was in the middle of the driveway. It got run over. emoticon The display doesn't work anymore but it still syncs! I keep it on my bra now. I am going to replace it with the flex in the spring. I miss the instant gratification of the display when I am on the go!

I've never had mine pop out of the rubber case, but I can't keep the wristband on at night to save my life. It comes off EVERY night, and I'm afraid I'll lose my FitBit in my bedding.

I had an ultra and lost it 2 weeks ago. I always had it hooked onto my bra and it fell somewhere in the city when I didn't notice. My biggest peeve is that I'm a premium member on fitbit and they won't freeze my membership until I get a new one (placed an order for the flex which doen't release until spring).

my son and I both have the one. He has lost his before but mine has not come out. I keep checking on mine since I know it will jump out sometimes.

I have a One and have had no problems with it wanting to migrate. But I don't take it out of the holder at night - just clip it on my nightgown. Maybe the holder gets stretched out over time and getting a replacement holder would solve the problem.

That sounds too confusing for me, Amy! What I meant was that I never needed a leash with my Ultra. I've had it over a year. Makes me wary of buying a One.. I don't see how a leash would help One owners cause it is the itty fitty that is popping out.

I don't wear mine on my bra- but on my waistband. I do use a leash and have pictures on my page of how it is attached to my ultra with a zip tie (if anyone is interested in checking out the pics for ideas). I then either loop the leash through a belt loop ir if wearing work pants/yoga pants- I attach the leash with a safety pin.

aargh, I did see someone mention this on the Fitbit site! I've never had any close calls with my Ultra and i don't use a leash! (I don't need a leash!) Guess I won't upgrade just yet to a One!

I have the ultra and have never had any close calls, but I worry about losing it. Last week I ordered a new pair of walking shoes from amazon and at the same time I ordered 3 pedometer leashes( I wanted a spare). Now I just have to figure out how to attach it to the fitbit.

My One hasn't popped out, but I generally wear it on the inside of my bra, not facing out. In theory, if it were to pop out of the rubber do dah, it would just fall within the bra between the girls and it'd be stopped by the band.

I suppose you could put a rubber band around it or some velcro.

EEEEKKKKK!

I had something similar happen. Thought it was GONE, but was caught in my shirt! thank goodness. Normally I have a guard on it that I clip to my pocket. But the little clip on device it sits in was broken. SO HAPPY when my new one came!

I am constantly checking to be sure the little fella is secure!

since this is the second time it has done this, contact customer service and let them know what is going on. They might actually replace it for you

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

We were getting ready to go to the race track on Friday and I happened to see my One on the ground in front of our trailer door. It seems to have "popped" out of the little rubber case and I hadn't noticed. I wear it on my bra and had my jacket on and zipped up. And this is the second time it's "popped" out. Has anyone else had this issue? And how did you fix it (if you did)? I'm seriously thinking about using tape it keep it in! I don't want to lose it!
